The Swiss political party “Young SVP,” a youth version of the Swiss People’s Party, has been at the center of a controversy for using a picture of the late singer Amy Winehouse in a new anti-drug campaign.

Amy Winehouse looks totally wasted on this poster that reads: “No to the decriminalization of drugs” and the Winehouse fans have begun protesting.

Grégory Logean, president of Young SVP Unterwallis stated that: “The death of Amy Winehouse put a sad reality before our eyes that other parties often forget – the harmful effects of drug consumption. It is not our methods which are shocking – it is reality. We are displaying a photo that the whole world already knows. Winehouse was known not only for her songs, but above all for her drug excesses.”
